My 10 month old is under the impression that she is required to sleep in my bed alongside my inert form every night, without exception. I have replaced her in her crib. This distresses her greatly, and she is loudly making her protestations known.

Goodbye, cruel bedroom. I'm done. It's the couch for me.

Oh, and don't worry about daddy, he could sleep through an earthquake.

We have definitely both slept on the couch at several points in our parenthood! You do what you have to do to get your sleep

The couch is not a bad idea. Your baby can smell you and hear your breathing. If she thinks you're around, she won't stop kvetching until you give in. I'm sure you've realized by now that she's more stubborn than you are, and seems to have infinitely energy until she gets her way!

I am NOT a fan of cry it out, but if leaving the room for a bit helps her settle faster, you do what you gotta do.

OP, if you can write with such wit and humor at an hour like that, your future is bright indeed.

Please share more!

(Hope the couch was comfy. Are you looking for a larger living space, where Baby can have her own room?)
